Barnsley Preview

Lee Croft scores against Barnsley last season

This afternoon the Yellows welcome Barnsley to Carrow Road.

The Tykes are riding on the crest of a wave after shocking Liverpool in the FA Cup last week, and City will be hoping that they’ve taken their eye off the ball when they come to town.

A few facts…

League Position: Norwich 13th, Barnsley 14th.

Last Meeting: 12th January 2008 – Barnsley 1 Norwich 3.

Last Meeting at Carrow Road: 26th August 2006 – Norwich 5 Barnsley 1.

Top Goalscorer: Norwich – Cureton (8), Barnsley – Howard (10).

Recently Played for Both Clubs: Tony Warner.

Fascinating Fact: If you’re going to the game tomorrow look at your ticket. That game going on in the background is last season’s game against the Tykes, as demonstrated here!

My Prediction: Roeder’s men will be looking to get back on track after last week’s battering at Leicester, and I think they will do it. 1-0 Norwich.

About the Author: A Norwich City fan who still loves Grant Holt, just. When I visit Fortress Carrow Road I can usually be found in the Jarrold Stand with a cornish pasty in one hand and a kit-kat in the other.
